Songbird Anne Murray released Country Croonin', a double-CD set with 31 country songs, including such classics as I Fall to Pieces and The Tennessee Waltz, in 2002. She also sings a duet of Let It Be Me with country star Vince Gill. "The musicians loved doing it, and I was born to sing these songs," Murray says. The singer, 57, will be touring the United States throughout the year. The four-time Grammy and three-time Country Music Association award winner was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame on Sept. 9. Murray grew up in the small coal-mining town of Springhill, Nova Scotia, and now lives in Toronto. She has two children, William, 26, and Dawn, 23. Murray recorded a duet with her daughter, a singer and songwriter, on her 1999 inspirational album, What A Wonderful World.
